Technical Assistance Resources
What is ARMHS?
The 2001 Legislature authorized the expansion of Minnesota’s Medical Assistance (MA) state plan to cover a broader array of rehabilitation services. The MA option is referred to as the "Rehab Option". DHS worked closely with counties, advocates and providers to develop the proposal, which was subsequently included in the Governor’s budget.
These new mental health services include MA coverage for adult rehabilitative mental health services (ARMHS) and mental health crisis response services. Note these services are not limited to people with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI). In calendar year 2013, 17,408 people received expanded services.
The adult rehabilitative mental health services (ARMHS) may only be provided by an entity (a county or provider) that has been certified using the provider certification process developed by the Department of Human Services in consultation with counties and others.
